    I stayed here when my boyfriend did Tough Mudder summer of 2013. This hotel is conveniently located as Tough Mudder happens in the North Star resort area (I believe). We were super close to the start location for Tough Mudder, which was awesome. The resort itself is okay – the rooms are pretty basic, but there are a few good places to eat in the center. There’s a sushi restaurant which actually served pretty good sushi. And there’s a pasta place which served mediocre pasta.

    I love skiing Northstar in the winter but this place is also a winner in the summer. The village is beautiful with a nice variety of clothing and equipment stores, restaurants/food kiosks serving everything from sushi to frozen yogurt, and a huge skating rink for rollerblading/skating in the summer to ice skating in the winter. At one end of the rink is a stage where local talent plays every afternoon. The rink is surrounded by outdoor bars and comfortable seating around firepits. There’s lots of activities for kids in the village: a miniature golf course that encircles the village’s common area, a sandbox, bungy jumping, gold panning, a movie theater and more. Without snow the mountain becomes one of the best mountain bike parks in the country and also has hiking paths that take you up to a beautiful view of Lake Tahoe. So much to do, so little time! There’s also an 18 hole golf course, horse-back riding and a nature trail with over 20 ceramic tiles for you and your kids to look for. And oh yes, it’s only 6 miles to Kings Beach/Lake Tahoe to the south and 6 miles to Truckee to the north. You’ll love it, I promise.

    This remains my favorite resort by far. I’m a snowboarder so I hate flat terrain. Northstar doesn’t offer much of that – and I love how you can skip the gondola and board straight down to Main Street 😀 I love how family friendly this resort is, and how updated the village and the lifts are. Yes, the lift tickets are quite pricey but I believe you get what you pay for, especially in terms of service, cleanliness and how updated the facilities are. The foods are quite pricey but its a snow resort, what did you expect? P.S. Don’t forget to try a belgian waffle from the Euro truck- it tastes heavenly, especially after a day of boarding!

    The snow was pretty nice over MLK weekend despite the complete lack of snow in Tahoe this season (2013-2014). I ski mostly beginner trails and there was enough to do on the three primary beginner trails.My biggest complaint is that it takes a while to get from the parking lot to the lift. If you want free parking, you have to go from the free parking lot > a shuttle > walk through the village area > gondolas > lifts. I’m used to skiing at smaller places, so the ~25 minutes from car to lifts seemed excessive.The staff at Northstar are also extremely friendly. Everyone had smiles on their faces and seemed happy to help.
